Upper-left of the motherboard:
TP67XE adopts 10-phase power supply, the design that is enough for 32nm CPU. There are two 8-Pin power connectors,
which are usually seen only on high-level motherboard (such as for server).
The existence of dual 8-Pin is not aimed at high power consumption of P67,
but at LN2 users who have to consume more 12V under high clock (such as overclocking).


IO:
6 X USB 2.0 (Red/Black)
2 X USB 3.0 (Blue)
1 X eSATA/USB 2.0 (both Red)
1 X 1394
1 X RJ-45
1 X S/PDIF




In the past, I preferred not using a computer case when testing hardware.
But this time many net pals hope me to use a case so that the test result,
such as overclocking ability and temperature, will be more similar to most consumersí condition.
The case is high-intermediate-level product
Antec DF-35, with 1 x top 140mm fan, 1 x rear white 120mm fan, and 2 x front variable-speed 120mm fans with white LED.
DF-35 has such advanced cooling system that it is helpful to keep the system steady after the computer is overclocked.


Test platform:
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K
MB: BIOSTAR TSERIES TP67XE
DRAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT CMT4GX3M2B2133C9
VGA: GIGABYTE GTX460 OC
HD: Intel X25-V 40GB RAID 0
POWER: Antec High Current Gamer 620W
Cooler: Mega Shadow Deluxe Edition
Case: Antec DF-35
OS: Windows7 Ultimate 64bit


Whole LGA 1155 system in Antec DF-35:


BIOSTAR provides much software:


Energy-saving software has been very popular in recent years.
CPU can effectively lower power consumption according to userís setting.


TOVERCLOCKER is BIOSTARís unique software
The software provides CPU, Memory information, and also shows H/W Monitor.


In TOVERCLOCKER, OC TWEAKER, which can adjust many clocks, is a useful tool to overclock.
